How did you start cheer?
I was invited to a cheer practice and so I went to try something new. I was so fascinated by the team dynamic, the stunts and tumbling. Right then I knew I had fallen in-love with the sport.
Most memorable cheer moment or experience?
My most memorable cheer moment is when I had flew my first Co-ed stunt... I think it was a block, lib- pop down. I was so excited. I made my friends and family watch the video at least 100 times. I was so proud of myself because I watched the open team do it so many times and I was so happy that I actually did it too!! Another time would have been when my team was practicing outside of the Milk House at Worlds 2011. We were warming up next to Top Gun. I had to pinch myself because I couldn't believe it.. A team I had watched for 2 years online was right in front of me, throwing flawless stunts. It was amazing.
What would you say in one sentence, to inspire young cheerleaders around you?
Be open. Be open to trying new, stunts, tumbling, techniques. Be helpful. Always be your team mates biggest cheerleader. Never quit.
What biggest personal gain or impact has cheer had on your life?
Cheer has helped me grow as an athlete and individual. It has given me a new avenue to work out and be athletic, work as a teammate, and work toward a common goal. It has provided me with a burning passion, that is something I will never let go of. It has provided me with confidence, strength and the ability to believe that anything is possible.
My cheer goal is to always stay involved with cheer! I want to continue to be inspired by the sport, and be able to help inspire others.
